Dorsal Nasal Rasp (Fine and Coarse)
Dorsal Nasal Rasps are for rhinoplasty procedures where traditional rasps like Fomon D/E or Peet-Cottle Rasps are too large or too coarse. These finer "finishing" rasps have Tungsten Carbide platforms that are durable and precise. The 2mm wide platforms allow for in-office procedures on the dorsal hump under local anesthesia. These are popular with surgeons who perform "touch up" rhinoplasty or those who are performing a revision rhinoplasty.
Key Takeaways and Uses:
- Tungsten Carbide Rasp Platforms
- Typically used for finishing rather than initial shaving of nasal bone or cartilage
- Fine tips for more precise outcomes
- For use during in-office or "touch up" rhinoplasty
Small "minimally invasive" or office-based plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures are growing in popularity. These are a tool that will enable the surgeon to perform procedures faster and have less "down time" for the patient.
